LSU was outside the Top Five before last Saturday. Now the Tigers are third in Scout's national team rankings after a big week on the recruiting trail.
LSU has reeled in a pair of four-star commits since the weekend — CB Andraez Williams and DL Glen Logan. Those two massive additions have the Tigers pushing for the top spot in the country.
LSU moved past Ole Miss into fifth with Williams' commitment during the Bayou Picnic on Saturday. Landing Logan on Wednesday pushed the Tigers up two spots to third ahead of Florida State and Georgia. LSU now trails only No. 1 Miami and No. 2 Ohio State in the team rankings.

Those can be a bit misleading though. The rankings are designed to rank entire 25-man classes as a whole. So at this early stage, with more than six months left to National Signing Day, the numbers can be a bit skewed. For example, Miami currently holds the top spot in the rankings, but the Hurricanes already have 24 commits in the 2016 class. Their 3.25 average star rating per commit is the fifth lowest of any team in the Top 25.
That's what makes LSU's class so promising. The Tigers have 11 commits so far in the 2016 class. That's less than any other team in the top eight. LSU's average star rating per commit of 4.09 leads the entire country. Of LSU's 11 commits, all but one are at least four-stars or higher.
And LSU still has a lot left to add. There are still seven uncommitted LSU targets in Louisiana alone rated four-stars or higher. That doesn't count the numerous highly rated out-of-state prospects on LSU's board.
While there's a long way to go until the final rankings are finalized, LSU's sure to stick near the top of the board, and the Tigers will definitely compete for the top spot in the country.
